Care minister Norman Lamb is meeting care providers later to discuss what he says is a crisis in care of the elderly and disabled at home.
Mr Lamb says a quarter of all clients in England are unhappy with the service they receive.
BBC social affairs correspondent Michael Buchanan says a priority will be ensuring visits last longer - at present some only last 10 minutes.
Continuity will also be called for, so people are familiar with their carers.
Hundreds of thousands of people are currently looked after by companies in their own homes and that number will increase in the coming years as the population ages, says the BBC's Michael Buchanan.
Mr Lamb believes the current system results in poor care, low wages and neglect, and is warning that there could be an abuse scandal in this sector, as serious as the problems which occurred at Stafford hospital.
Much domiciliary care, also known as home care, is paid for by local councils who say that a funding crisis - exacerbated by austerity cuts - limits the amount they can afford.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are about to have their first baby. There are plenty of things in short supply in this situation. Sleep, for example. But there is one thing that will come in unwelcomed abundance: Advice.
Family, friends and more or less total strangers feel a compulsive urge to give advice. The royal couple will have extra advice from every attention-seeking pundit who can squeeze on to a television studio sofa.
This was a compliment for Leanne Burke, who works from our Sale Office of Routes Healthcare.
"Just wanted to let you know mum passed away this afternoon. Thank you so much for looking after her and the family. It made things so much easier to know there was some body there who truly cared. Thank you. xx"
Well done Leanne!
